Sad news out of Ireland of the Coast Guard team who went down off the Mayo Coast. One dead thus far, the other three missing. Lives dedicated to the rescue of others. There is a primal nature to the danger of the sea and a gallantry of those who brave that danger for their fellow man. Irish fishermen, who lives very often depend on the Coast Guard, are part of the search.
I am reminded of the Irish Fisherman’s sweaters, with a special stich for each family so they could recognize those recovered from the sea. And of times on the Irish Coast, when looked out at the sea wondering would it would be like for someone struggling to reach its shore. Watching the surf come crashing in, spray and foam touching the rocky beach. May the rest of the crew be found or recovered and brought home from the sea.

Our judiciary enable Islamic separatism..
“A father who describes himself as “Anglo-Saxon” has lost a legal battle to prevent his Muslim ex-wife from sending their 10-year-old son to an Islamic secondary school.
The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said he was determined to prevent his son from attending a “school inside a mosque” on the grounds that he would be “marginalised” by his son if he enrolled at the London-based school next year.”
An incredible dhimmified decision. This sends the message that our Courts will actively support Muslims seeking to stay apart from the British State,

The Dutch people go to the polls for their General Election Tomorrow. I’m sure I speak for all patriots and nationalists, and all decent everywhere, in wishing Geert Wilders and the Party for Freedom the very best of luck. Our civilisation rests on your shoulders tomorrow. Well that, and thwarting the inevitable cheating which all patriots must now overcome.

Parliament approved the Brexit Bill last night. A reminder of what it says:
The Prime Minister may notify, under Article 50(2) of the Treaty on European Union, the United Kingdom’s intention to withdraw from the EU.
The Commons passed it, the Lords added (wrecking) amendments, last night the Commons rejected the amendments, and then Lords decided that they prefer 300 quid a day rather than be abolished. So that’s that. The PM can now, finally, trigger Article 50. But this is Theresa May, the Ditherer-in-Chief, so she’s sitting on her hands instead.
But The Telegraph understands that the Queen is likely to give the legal assent to the law that allows Mrs May to start Brexit talks on Thursday.
Mrs May is then understood to be targeting triggering Article 50 on Wednesday March 29, after a speaking tour of Britain when she will sell her vision for the UK outside the EU.
Right, so she’s going to wait a few more weeks, to sell us something we desperately want anyway. I don’t rate her. She’s all promises and no delivery, but doing naff all nine months after the EU Referendum, and with nothing left to delay the process, I have to say that she’s driving me up the wall. The Bill should have been with Her Maj at breakfast and a letter fired off to Brussels by noon.
Get on with it woman.

In a decidedly Trump Administration moment Trump’s Press Secretary Steve Spicer announced that when Trump tweeted that President Trump tweeted that President Obama had wiretapped him he did mean it literally. The outrageous and unsubstantiated claim now consigned to the mountain of Trump lies that even he can’t keep going.
Also of the new norm was his spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway walking back her suggestion that President Obama may have used a device in a microwave to spy on Trump, claiming in this post-satire era that she is “not in the job of having evidence”.
One begins to wonder not if the media is too hard on the Trump Administration, but rather that it is too soft on the Trump Administration.
I wonder if Dr. Strangelove would today be mistaken for a documentary film.

Nicola Sturgeon has thrown down the gauntlet today to Westminster. Reports the BBC:
Nicola Sturgeon has confirmed she will ask for permission to hold a second referendum on Scottish independence.
Ms Sturgeon said she wanted a vote to be held between the autumn of 2018 and the spring of the following year […]
She will ask the Scottish Parliament next Tuesday to request a Section 30 order from Westminster. The order would be needed to allow a fresh legally-binding referendum on independence to be held.
Prime Minister Theresa May has so far avoided saying whether or not she would grant permission.
She’s a cute one. The PM can agree to it, and she’ll look weak, or she can knock it back, which risks boosting SNP support and nationalist feeling. Brexit negotiations are due to conclude around spring 2019, so there’s zero chance of Sturgeon’s timetable being approved. Scotland is coming out of the EU, and that’s that.
I’m still intrigued y this SNP idea of independence. Devolution means that Scotland has the power to set its own policies in alot of areas. For some reason, the SNP would prefer the “independence” of handing all powers to the EU. Nope, me neither.
In the end I suspect that May will allow IndyRef2 – after Brexit and if Holyrood votes for it after the 2021 Scottish elections.

Can’t wait for C.N.N. and the BBC and the other fake news outlets to give THIS due prominence..
Hillary Clinton’s team members met with the Russian ambassador during the election as well as Donald Trump’s, the Kremlin spokesman has alleged, as he set out to dismiss the “hysteria” surrounding Mr Trump’s unsupported links to Russia.
Maybe we need to have a legal enquiry into just what Team Clinton were talking to the Russians about?

Did you catch the story of Diego, the over one hundred year old giant tortoise who has saved his species from extinction by fathering more than 800 offspring? Talk about coming out of your shell!
He was returned to the Galapagos Archipelago after living at the San Diego Zoo from the 1930s to 1960s. He had orginally been taken from Espanola some time after 1900, and allowed into the USA which at that time apparently was less concerned with Travel Bans.
The tortoise population had been decimated by pirates and whalers who saw them as slow moving meals. The introduction of goats and rats (but at least no lawyers) to the islands helped destroy their eggs. Even Charles Darwin whose theory of evolution evolved there couldn’t help himself, writing in 1839 of how the tortoises made “excellent soup.”
Breeding in captivity is one of the nicer retirement plans for the elderly of which I am aquainted. Diego has apparently discovered some sort of tortoise viagra which has allowed his species to thrive, unlike Lonesome George, another ancient turtle who died on nearby Pinta Island without…dare I say it…giving a fuck, and thus condemning his subspecies to extinction.
I salute you Diego, and may your golden years remain active and fruitful. The race is not always to the swift. In these days when environmental efforts and wildlife conservation are under attack from an unscientific confederacy of dunces, it is good to know that some, like Diego, are doing God’s work in the trenches.

Nicola Sturgeon has demanded a rematch, has penciled in October 2018. Dublin calls next week. I can already feel the tremors.
